Primary Color: The Red Barn at Venn Farm in Cornwall

Boutique hotel directory Mr. and Mrs. Smith is one of our favorite sites to search for design inspiration, but it's usually of the high-end ($$$) variety. This Barn Cottage in Devon/Cornwall caught our eye thanks to its attainable simplicity. A basic red-brick holiday home on the Cornish coast, its primary colors and classic pieces lend the place a relaxed but pulled-together look.

IDEAS TO STEAL
• White is a simple and sophistacated backdrop for the red-yellow-blue color scheme.
• A bright yellow accent wall makes an awkward staircase into a design statement.
• Wallpaper visually anchors the beds against the bedroom head walls.
• Flowers in mason jars are colorful, inexpensive accents.

Rates for the cottage begin at a not-so-astronomical £550 a week for a house that sleeps four, and the home has several green features, including ground-source heat and triple-glazed insulation.
